The Oakland Athletics honored Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley this weekend.
On Friday they dedicated a gate at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum to the former reliever.
On Saturday, they gave Eckersley bobbleheads to fans in attendance.
The A's social media team jumped at the opportunity to make a not-so-subtle joke about Eckersley's run-in with Red Sox starter David Price earlier this season.
With Xander Bogaerts out tonight - he was called day-to-day by manager Alex Cora - after injuring his left index finger, the Red Sox have called up infielder Tzu-Wei Lin from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Bogaerts injured the finger sliding into second while stealing the base in the 14-10 victory over the Mariners on Friday night. Left-handed reliever Robby Scott was sent to Pawtucket to make room for Lin.
Lin was hitting .299 for the PawSox after falling as low as .188. He had a 16-game hitting streak that ended June 14.
Scott was called up this week to make his 2018 Red Sox debut. He appeared in one game, he took the loss against the Twins Tuesday night when he walked a batter and hit a batter - who both came around to score - when he started the eighth inning with the score tied at 2.
